Sermon About Pentecost: The Promise of Holy Spirit Acts 2

 Sermon About Pentecost: The Promise of Holy Spirit 

1. The Promise of Pentecost Luke 24:49, Acts 1:5,8

  • Clothed with power
  • Clothed with the Spirit
  • Empowered by the Spirit

Peter preached to a group of people on the Day of Pentecost that had seen and heard infallible proof of the present power of God operating in the lives of His disciples. These were Jews that had come from various countries and regions to worship in Jerusalem and on this day, they heard believers speaking languages they had never learned, speaking about the “wonderful works of God” (Acts 2:11).

In shock, amazement (and also great fear of God’s judgment on their sins), they asked: “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” The answer Peter gave them then is the same answer that applies to every individual today:

Acts 2:38 NKJV … “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” 

Jesus promised to give the Holy Spirit to ALL believers. Without the Holy Spirit, the Church will be dead and unable to move. Acts 2: 1-4

2. The Miracle of Pentecost

The Holy Spirit is poured out upon waiting disciples with sudden and dramatic impact

When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.  Acts 2: 1

They were filled with the Holy Spirit

One accord – being unanimous, having mutual consent, being in agreement, having one mind and purpose. 

One soul save, the whole heaven rejoice. 

Fullness of Time = God’s sovereign appointment of events in both space and time.

These 2 Scripture demonstrate these truth; God has specific dates and time on His Divine Calendar.

Acts 2:1 When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place.  2And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 

    • These men were empowered to speak the Word of God boldly

    • Peter does in Chapter 2 and 3000 are saved!(Vs. 41)
